There's been another scrappy finish to cross off my sewing list. This time around, I was able to use up those bits of fabric left from squaring up yardage and turn them into some seasonal looking potholders.
I've made potholders before, but wanted to make sure these would provide extra protection from the heat and along with two layers of quilt batting, there's also a layer of insulating batting.
The back of each potholder is corduroy, with a fold over pocket (with a layer of batting inside) - thickening things up even more. Stitching through so many layers worked just fine on my vintage Singer 15-91, she didn't skip a single stitch in attaching the binding!
There's so much I'm loving about this finish - from the dotty binding, skinny strips of too pretty to throw out scraps, right down to the soft feel of corduroy on the potholder back. Oh, not forgetting that these were made especially for a sweet friend. I think she will like them and I hope they get lots of use!
|Loving those free motion loops I quilted the potholders with - they remind me of ribbon candy. ;o)|
I'm linking up this latest scrappy finish up with Leanne and Nicky for:
